High fantasy meets adult comedy in Simpsons creator Matt Groening’s new, 10-episode animated series Disenchantment, coming to Netflix on August 17. The first-look images revealed today pull back the curtain on a magical, medievilish world inhabited by a disgruntled heroine and her strange companions.
Disenchantment is set in the crumbling kingdom of Dreamland, where hard-drinking young princess Bean (voiced by Abbi Jacobson) embarks on epic misadventures with her feisty elf companion Elfo (Nat Faxon) and her personal demon, Luci (Eric Andre). As they buckle swashes across the land, they run up against ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses — and lots of human fools.
The voice cast also features John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.
Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama). Disenchantment is produced by The ULULU Company for Netflix, with Groening and Josh Weinstein (The Simpsons, Futurama) serving as executive producers.
